The book for my Mom's 80th birthday was a huge hit! She says it is the best gift she’s ever received. Her friends are still raving about it. The vintage scarf wrapper is an extra-special touch, especially for a life-long thrifter like her. She kept saying, “Once you reach my age, when there are no gifts that you really need, this book is perfect. It’s incredibly meaningful and overwhelming in the best way.” Fiona took such care with the details of our project. Thank you, Fiona. You helped me and my sister celebrate our Mom in a way that is perfectly fitting for her.
It was the perfect gift to offer to our colleague for her dedication and hard work! Our friend just loved it! Fiona guided us from the start and the final result shows Fiona's artist soul and mastery in every detail of the beautiful book.
I loved everything about my experience with Fondfolio. Their customer service is awesome and answered all my questions. The process is simple and straightforward, but still allows plenty of customization. And the final product...it's just amazing. The pictures, as gorgeous as they are, don't do these books justice. They are high quality! The prompts they ask your family/friends to complete are great too. They may seem a little unorthodox, but they really get people to open up. It was very moving to see what everyone wrote, and the book wasn't even for me! Well worth the money and the effort.

Fondfolio provided a beautiful, highly customized gift for my partner. They have a nice web product that's being built out and are very responsive.
The collaboration process for creating the book could have been improved as it was handled all over email, however the end result made the minor inconvenience very worth it.
Thank you Fiona, for your major role in creating this astonishing, touching gift that my family gave me on my special birthday. Your creative spirit, evident in this gift, has manifested in a truly 21st century way. May you continue to know the satisfaction of touching many lives with your work. Donna Bailey
This was the perfect gift for my extremely homesick fiance. It allowed me to create such a meaningful and comforting reminder that she has so many caring people in her life, and I know she'll treasure it forever. Fiona was so helpful and accommodating in making sure all of my questions and concerns were covered, and the custom cover artwork is absolutely beautiful. Her rationale for the design is also incredibly touching and made the whole piece even more special. I couldn't have asked for a better gift and would have no hesitation in recommending a Fondfolio to anyone who is looking for something that will be admired for a lifetime.
I wouldn't change anything.
Fiona was extremely helpful and accommodating in our interactions. The final product is very awe-inducing, the way it is professionally laid out like a chapter book but also very unique and personal in it's craft-like construction (very high quality craft-like). The Fondfolio was incredibly well received. She's been feeling down so I gave it to her early, before her 40th birthday. When she opened it and wondered what it was, she immediately burst into tears seeing all the names of people writing about her. It was a very special moment. I think she's read through it several times now and is in touch with people she hasn't talk to in years, to say thanks.
Nothing I can think of, it was a flawless experience.
Stumbled upon Fondfolio in pursuit of a unique 40th birthday gift for my wife, who loves books. It did not disappoint. Fiona was incredible, responsive, and helpful. And the overall experience was so easy to setup and manage. The website make it easy on you with helpful reminders. But the bulk of the value hits when the recipient opens it. We got stuck in traffic during our trip. So I had my wife open it while we were stuck in said traffic, and she spent the next couple of hours going through everything, completely moved. What a great gift and moment in time – best antidote to bad traffic I've come across. :)
The book itself is very high-quality, unique, and hand-bound. Fiona also worked with me to expedite shipping so that I had it in hand when I needed it. The entire experience was wonderful. Thanks again!
I recently had my birthday and was gifted a Fondfolio by my husband and friends. Outside of my dog, it is the most beautiful gift I’ve ever been given. I’ve been crying for the last week reading it. If you have someone who has had a challenging year(s), a big birthday is coming up, OR a person who you have no idea what to get, I can’t think of something better.
Nothing. Do it now!
We created a wonderful retirement book for one of our favorite colleagues. It is amazing!! Our colleague was so touched by the incredible words and how beautifully put together the book is. Please let me know if there is somewhere on line where I can leave a testimonial.
